UNM, Looking for some help!


Hi, I'm new to the site. I was looking for some help!

I was accepted into the summer 09' BSN program at U.N.M.

Does anyone want to sell their old books or know of anyone selling some.

I know we usually keep them for the entire 4 levels, but I'm hoping someone knows something.

I'm freaking out because they cost almost a thousand dollars this semester. Also, maybe someone has some more ideas about scholarships to apply for, beyond what the nursing dept. Offers.

Specializes in none yet, but I'm VERY excited!.

It's too early to stress out. I can't help you with the books, but go to fastweb.com and scholarships.com for the scholarships. You can also use google. If you make scholarship apps a 1 to 2 hour per week job, you should get a lot of money. Many scholarships ask for essays about similar questions, so once you get about 4 or 5 essays written (why I want to be a nurse, why I'll be a good nurse, etc.) You can use each essay for more than one application.

Have a good time at UNM!

How long did it take you to get accepted? Was it your first try?

I got a fair number of my books from eCampus.com; also Amazon and ebay have used texts. Just make sure you get the right edition. I saved a lot of money that way.

Haunt the bookstore early, they do sell used books. Mine wouldn't be of help as I only did my graduate work there.

Thank You!

Yes, I was lucky enough to get in first try. I applied for the spring semester. They picked 15 for spring and 15 for summer. I think many people don't know they split the 35 accepted applicants into the next two previous terms. Then the fill the other 15 spots when the next application opens up. I wish you good luck:)
